Maritime Source Guide

The Maryland Historical Society has the most extensive Maritime holdings in Maryland.  The collection ranges from Passenger Manifests to Customs Records to an extensive collection of Prints, Photos, and Maps, as well as journals and manuscripts. Please be aware that this is not a complete list. Both published and manuscript sources are included in our online catalog, and patrons are encouraged to experiment with general and specific searches. More detailed finding aids for manuscript sources are also available in the McIlvain Special Collections Reading Room.
